Santa Monica, CA – GSN, the leader in game shows and competitive entertainment, announced today that 2015 was the network’s most-watched year ever in both cable primetime and total day among Total Viewers and the key demos, Adults 18-49, Women 18-49, Adults 25-54 and Women 25-54. This is also the fourth consecutive year of growth for the 21-year old cable network in cable primetime, bucking the current downward trend in viewership being experienced by other well-established cable channels.
Noteworthy end-of-year ratings highlights for the network include: 2015 outgaining 2014 as the most watched year ever (+19%) in total day among total viewers; growing its W18-49 (+35%) P25-54 (+22%) and W25-54 (+18%) year-over-year in cable primetime and ending 2015 on a strong note by delivering its most watched fourth quarter ever in both total day and cable primetime among total viewers and across key demos. GSN was also one of the top ten fastest growing ad-supported cable entertainment networks in 4Q in cable primetime among P18-49 and P25-54.
GSN’s continued success was bolstered by a network brand refresh, freshman series HELLEVATOR bringing in new younger viewers, and its two most popular series, SKIN WARS, hosted by actress Rebecca Romijn (which garnered a new spinoff, SKIN WARS: FRESH PAINT) and IDIOTEST, hosted by comedian Ben Gleib, which will each return in 2016 for a third season. In 2016, GSN will continue to produce new originals that target women, including 40 episodes of the recently announced WINSANITY, hosted by actor and comedian Donald Faison.
